Most of us go to God for answers, when in reality, it is God Himself we seek. Answers only become important when you don’t trust that God has your best interests in mind. We want God to explain our situations not because we want to understand His perfect plan, but because we want to be in control of our lives. Our requests are inherently selfish.
Ironically, the answers we seek can only be found by knowing God intimately. We can’t expect to know why bad things happen to good people until we understand what God defines as “good.” We can’t expect to know why some people die young until we bury our head in Christ’s embrace and weep with Him. We can’t expect to understand why some people go to hell unless we fully surrender our souls to Heaven.
The answers we seek don’t come from God—they are God. Cuddle up next to Him and listen to the beat of His compassionate heart. Then you can “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7)
